Recently purchased a 99 sportsman 500 with approx 350 hrs and 1500 miles. Im about to tear into all the maintenance. What is the best oil to use or should I just get polaris oil? Thanks in advance.

You're gonna get lots of answers, and probably confusion, on this topic.

Plain and simple in 1999 Polaris recommended a 0w40 oil so run a 0w40 oil. Mobil One or Amsoil 0w40 either one would be perfect for your Sportsman. Have fun with the 500!

QS 5W50 full synthetic.
